Clayton County school leaders say they are extending the district’s partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help feed residents in the south metro community.

Beginning today, pantry services are available from noon to 2 p.m. on Fridays at Huie Elementary, Lee Street Elementary and Riverdale Middle schools, the district said.

The school system also is looking for volunteers to help with sorting, packing and distributing food to participants. To help, volunteers are asked to arrive two hours before the distribution starts every Friday.

Interested volunteers should contact Angela Horrison-Collier, CCPS Director of Student Services, via email at angela.horrison-collier@clayton.k12.ga.us.
